Re: Renthal Kevlar Grips

If you look at your Renthal grips, they'll say just how thick they are. It'll be V29 or V32 on the thumb side.

As been mentioned, the difference is the outer diameter. You want thicker grips go with 32, narrow, go with 29.

IMO, 29mm is the way to go. I have 32mm Dual Compounds on my R1 now cause a local shop ****ed up my order and I don't really like them. Didn't want to go through the hassle of return/re-order, so I stuck with them.

On my R6 I have a set of 29mm Kevlars that I've had laying around for several months. Online vendor sent me the wrong Dual Compounds so they let me keep them and sent me the right set.

Seems I can't get any luck ordering these things. lol. Personally, I like the regular Dual Compounds better than the Kevlars, but to each his own.

Yeah, but now I wish it were a dual. Might put this up F/S and get the dual.

Oh, those bad boys aren't cheap. Maybe I'll post it on BARF just to see what I could get.

Depending on what year it is, I'd say $1500-2000 or so. I want a Kendon but dont think I can afford one

It's a 2010 model, seen one that was a late 90s model (dual if I recall correctly) going for $2k, I LOL'd. If that were the case, I could get retail for mine. The range you listed is what I was thinking; I wouldn't sell that low though.

Re: Renthal Kevlar Grips

I sell and get Renthal grips. i am gonna be placing an order shortly for a bunch. Medium and Hards I think Whatever Gray is and black. Perfect for racers. Razor thin, last forever, and they are short so they don't hit the paement easily.

Otherwise, I've got plenty of the superbike pro-grip grips that feel similar, but are softer to the hand and are the correct length.

Come at me bros so I know how many to order.

Re: Renthal Kevlar Grips

I'm about ready for another set myself. Kind of getting torn around the ends, because I like to grab real close to the end of the bar in corners.


Best grips I've every used, though.
